The blog has just hit 2 million views and it is not even 2 years old yet, still a baby in the blogosphere, lol. Thank you to all the contributors and supporters who helped the blog to achieve its milestone so soon 🙂 Also a big thank you to Gu Man and her Shan Shan and Yi Chen which are helping the blog to grow up fast.
I feel a bit jealous of hoju because she got such a fun-filled episode 29 and what do I get? Oh mother, I am stuck with Mo Sheng’s mum for half of the episode and the other half with that Yuan Feng. The only silver lining in my cloud is at the end when the wedding was held. As you would have noticed, update has slowed down because we hate to say good-bye.
My Sunshine Episode 30 Review & Recap (written by peanuts & illustrated by chewywon)
In the office, Mo Sheng recalls what Xiao Xiao had said the night before, “It’s not possible for two people to be together without the blessing of their family’s elders.” Hence she calls her mum to invite her to attend her wedding. She tells her they’ve already registered their marriage and now is the ceremony. Ms. Pei says she doesn’t agree to her marriage and Mo Sheng asks for the reason. Mo Sheng says she can tell her directly that she doesn’t want to attend her wedding since she has never liked her. All she wants to do is just to inform her and gets her blessing. Mo Sheng’s mum is one cold woman. She and her dad should have divorced when she was young in view of their frosty relationship but there are many people who still stay married for various other reasons.Xiao Xia stumbles upon Yi Chen in the car park and teases him if he has come back so early to spend some quality time with his wife. Yi Chen replies that he gonna double her legal fees next year. Ahaha, serve you right for daring to invade our lawyer He’s home turf. Shoo, shoo, quickly move back home 😛 Then Yuan Feng is here to tell Xiao Xiao that his parents want to meet her. The main problem is not the parents but there is no love between them. She doesn’t want to marry someone who is deeply in love with another woman.
Then Yuan Feng comes across Yi Mei doing an interview outdoor. She tells him that her original ambition is to be a journalist. She didn’t persist with it because she felt a broadcaster can match someone she liked better. She sees the error of her ways as someone who is not persistent in her ambition will not get far in life. Yuan Feng says she has changed. He also tells her he may start a new relationship. I thought they already had their closure when she returned his necklace to him? Urrrrgh, this is so draggy.
Yuan Feng realizes he actually didn’t like Yi Mei and goes to Yi Chen’s place to look for Xiao Xiao. He tells her his love for Yi Mei is superficial and he was in love with her image only. Xiao Xiao says irrespective of what, they still can’t get together just because they are having a child. In reply, Yuan Feng asks for a chance to prove his love for her, “If I don’t love you, my heart will also not love another.” If she is willing to accept him then accept his necklace. Poof they just disappeared while our nosy couple are chatting. Mo Sheng is touched by what Yuan Feng said but Yi Chen says she is dumb, lol. I also think Mo Sheng is a dummie but I guess opposite attracts!
The mum is pondering about Mo Sheng’s impending wedding date. Then Xiao Xiao tells Mo Sheng that Yuan Feng brought her to meet his parents yesterday. Arrrgh, why am I recapping all these boring stuff? Where in the world is my Yi Chen, sob sob? Xiao Xiao also tells Mo Sheng about her grandma. I won’t bored you with her grand-mother’s story. In a nutshell, your prospective marriage partner needs not be rich or handsome but must be sincere and earnest. Hence Yuan Feng should be a good hubby and daddy. Anyway she is rather confused and doesn’t want to think about it anymore. Mo Sheng tells her she’ll support whatever decision she gonna make. Xiao Xiao changes the topic and asks if Mo Sheng is feeling anxious of her wedding tomorrow.
Ms Pei goes to the law firm to see Yi Chen. Their conversation follows the novel very closely so lazy me asks you to read my novel translation. I’ll translate the part where it starts to diverge from the novel. I don’t understand why Gu Man wants to change the story on Yi Chen’s parents. Is it because too politically sensitive to have a mayor receiving bribe? I am glad this novel departs from the norm where the male lead always wants to seek revenge but ends up falling in love with the female lead. To forgive is the best way to forget. Although Yi Chen didn’t say he’ll forgive Mo Sheng’s dad, it can be implied so or else he won’t have married Mo Sheng, your enemy’s daughter.
You Are My Sunshine
Ms Pei: Does Xiao Sheng know about this?
Yi Chen: She doesn’t need to know, and she’ll never know.
Ms Pei: Thus, you are not here to seek revenge? Then I feel assured. I am trying to find out your motive as I am scared you seeked Mo Sheng out to take revenge. Since this is not the case, I want to tell you the truth about that incident. Your dad’s death has nothing to do with Mo Sheng’s dad as he has paid all the money for the project. But the main contracting company dragged the payment to your dad resulting in his accident. The main contracting company must have said Mo Sheng’s dad didn’t pay up but the truth is not like that. All of you’ve misunderstood.
Yi Chen: I knew already.
Ms Pei: You already knew?
Yi Chen: Since Ms Pei has intention to come today, then you should know the boss of the main contracting company committed business fraud and went to jail 4 year old.
Ms Pei: You?
Yi Chen: I was the prosecuting lawyer for that case.
Ms Pei: You have already investigated it throughly? That is good. I was afraid that you’ve misunderstood.
Yi Chen: Indeed, I had it throughly investigated a few year ago. Thus Zhao Qing Yuan and the contracting company truly have no relationship. We all understood.
Ms Pei: Mo Sheng’s dad is also in the wrong as he did not perform his supervisory role properly in the process. Slow paying incidents are everywhere so who would have thought an accident will happen? Her dad also paid a price for this. I hope you can forgive Mo Sheng’s dad.
Yi Chen: It is getting late so I won’t hold you up anymore.
Ms Pei: I hope you can give me an undertaking. Even if I’m not close to Xiao Sheng, I’m still her mother. Since like this, I’m leaving.
Yi Chen: They gave me ten years but I want Mo Sheng for a lifetime
Yi Chen: Mo Sheng loves to let her imagination run wild, so please don’t let her know about all these. (Yi Chen really cares about Mo Sheng which is why he doesn’t want her to be unhappy over this. Ignorant is bliss)
Yahoo, Yi Chen receives a message from Mo Sheng who is informing him that Xiao Xiao has moved back home. She’ll be going to his office. Then they’ll go to pick up auntie and uncle He from the train station and have dinner together.
Mo Sheng keeps sending him messages since he didn’t reply. Why Yi Chen always doesn’t reply her message? He laughs at her impatience.
——”Didn’t reply me, it is unlikely you are not around……”
——”Poor phone, where did Yi Chen misplace you?”
This part is exactly like the ending of the novel where Yi Chen says he’ll go down to meet her and she is counting the grid tiles.
Mo Sheng: I sent you so many messages but you never reply me. Did you misplace your phone again? Your poor phone. Did you know how long I’ve waited for you? I’ve already counted to 999 a few times. Hold hands to seek peace.
Heehee, I get to recap the wedding ceremony but only half of it 😦 It is all white, very romantic and lavish. It’ll be better if WC has trimmed his hair neater and Mo Sheng is not using her wig.
Although Lao Yuan is still single, he gets to give the speech due to his seniority and experience in life. Marriage is where both people cohabit, not vent their fury at each other (he says it with a pun in Chinese). He tells handsome Yi Chen to remember:
Whatever the wife says is also correct. What she says is correct then it is correct. What she says is wrong then it is incorrect but you still must think it is correct.
Lao Yuan wishes them to have at least 2 babies soon. This Lao Yuan is so humorous. He says he is still single so whoever that gets the bouquet later must leave her phone number with him or at least her email address. He wishes the handsome and pretty couple a blissful life together. I’ve to say this one final time. If Yuan Feng was created to provide comical relief then it is a big failure. Gu Man should have worked on Lao Yuan and Xiang Heng to flesh them out better. Match them with Li Jing and Xiao Hong and we’ll have one big happy family 🙂 Many people in baidu like Lao Yuan who I am already fond of in the novel. Such a pity he is wasted in the drama.
I can’t help but to share this photos which I found online with WC smiling so happily until you can’t even see his big eyes. My, my such sparkling white teeth, a prospective endorser for Colgate toothpaste lol.
The episode ends with Yi Mei staring deep into the eyes of a handsome guy outside the wedding site. Who is this guy? According to hoju, his name is 刘成瑞 (Liu Cheng Rui). Bongsd thinks he looks like a Korean actor who I’ve forgotten the name. Indeed he looks like a Korean. Is he really a Korean or did he go there for plastic surgery? Anyway, he should have appeared earlier to spare us the agony of having to watch Yi Mei’s unrequited love for Yi Chen.
